North Saanich teen rides to success

Dillon Morrison reaches downhill top 10 goal this summer

North Saanich teen Dillon Morrison rode to success last month as he found his way to the top 10 in one of three B.C. Cup Downhill mountain bike races he competed in this summer.

Morrison, 14, placed 17th at the first U17 B.C. Cup race he competed in this summer, held July 15 at SunPeaks. In his second downhill competition, held July 22 at Silver Star, he finished 11th. But he cracked the top 10 at his third competition, held Aug. 26 at Mt. Washington, finishing 7th overall.

“The competition is definitely tough,” said Morrison. “There are a lot of talented riders out there [including] riders from all over B.C. and Alberta. It took me the three tries to reach the top ten, but I love the challenge.”
